Abstract:

INTERACTIVE COMPUTER GRAPHICS can reduce the time and cost of any design process by at least one-third. To realize this great reduction, interactive computer graphics programs will have to be developed at every design level. SEARCH is an automated architectural criteria maintenance and design evaluation system. SEARCH is used in two phases of Corps design work. CORPS, the Conversationally Oriented Real-Time Program-Generating System, provides computational support for engineering planners, designers, and managers who require a responsive computer resource, but do not choose to be computer programmers. This paper gives 1 guidelines for programs incorporated in CORPS, 2 the run sequence for using CORPS, 3 an example problem showing the use of one program, 4 a list of the programs presently in CORPS at WES, 5 a list of the programs being added to the CORPS library, and 6 excerpts from an article by Robert L. Renner outlining an early conception of CORPS.
